This version was made from stills from the film. Forrest J.Ackerman,editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland, had a standing offer of 35,000.00 for a print. There could very well be a 16mm print or foreign print somewhere,other lost films have been found in stranger places.

CURSE OF THE UBANGI a lost exploitation movie by Dwain Esper has shown up dubbed in Spainish on South American television- So it's not so hard to imagine that somewhere prints of LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT is being used by showmen in other countries that don't know what they got. I never thought that they would ever find a print of the 1910 FRANKENSTEIN but here it is in the Archives.

I always like to think that somewhere out there is a print of every lost film waiting to be found.
And with any luck someone will put a print of that rare film here in the Archives for everyone to download and enjoy.
